I wonder if there are any good live Beatle SB's out there, which would of course, eliminate most crowd noise

There are. I've heard some boots in the past where the sound quality was very good. Cooll to listen to from a historical perspective, but the performances never sounded any good. By most accounts, icluding the Beatles themselves, after the advent of Beatlemania, their concert performances were never very good. Due to the incredible amount of crowd noise, they were never able to hear themselves onstage, thus were never able to play with any cohesion. They are on record as saying that it got so bad that they eventually stopped trying and just went out and went thru the motions because no one else in the venue could hear them either. This, I'm pretty sure, was a significant factor in their decision to stop touring after 1966.
